UK Visa requirements for citizens belonging to Yoruba speaking countries outside the EU or EEA

For citizens belonging to countries outside the EU or EEA, there are number of supportive documents which are submitted along with successful UK Visa applications. However if any of these documents were made in the Yoruba language then you will have to submit certified translation of such documents along with the original document.

According to the Government of United kingdom, all supportive documents should be originally written in either English or Welsh language. If not, then they must be accompanied by a full English or Welsh translation. Further it is also required that all such translated documents should be certified translations, which can be independently verified by the Home Office.

Nigeria is the only country where Yoruba is an official or national language.
